    Below are just some of the exhibits currently at the

     Burke Museum.

    • Brace yourselves, dino-lovers: Burke Museum paleontologists have discovered the first dinosaur fossil ever found in Washington state!
    • Immerse yourself in the lives of people from different cultures around the Pacific Rim. Pacific Voices is about cultural identity—about how we know who we are.
    • More of the "Tufts-Love" T. rex skull will be revealed every day.
    • From lethal lava to grinding glaciers to rampaging reptiles, marvel at the natural forces that shaped Washington's landscape and the amazing animals that once lived here.
    • See more than 100 objects—from glittering gems to colorful birds to remarkable works of art—that highlight the breadth of the collections held at the Burke.

    There are several public pay-to-park lots within a few blocks of the Burke. City of Seattle street parking available near the Burke with parking limits between two and four hours. The closest street parking is found along 15th Ave. NE, 16th Ave. NE and 17th Ave. NE. Download a printable map (PDF).

    Check Out Contemporary Art at the Henry Art Gallery

    The Henry Art Gallery features contemporary art and ideas and is just a 5-minute walk from the Burke. Plus, if you’re visiting the Burke, you can pay just $1 more to see the Henry on the same day. Ask about this deal at Burke admissions. Note that the Henry is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Search for the Henry on the UW map.

    In the University District
    A wide range of dining options is available just a block away from the Burke on University Way (aka, “the Ave”). From cheap eats to white tablecloths, classic burgers to international favorites, you’re sure to find something that suits your palate.

    A Northwest Holiday Tradition


    PNB’S best-selling holiday classic is a fantastical combination of Ian Falconer’s unique design, Tchaikovsky’s beloved score, and the entire Company in show-stopping roles. A memory making tradition for generations of families and friends, Nutcracker fun includes McCaw Hall gloriously decked-out for the season’s best photo ops.

    We have special student matinee pricing!

      Students are $17 and chaperones are $27 !!  The number of chaperones may not exceed the number of students.  (These tickets are usually  $38-$138 !)

    Tickets must be purchased by October 24th !

    Get there early – The lobby opens two hours before each performance. Take advantage of the various photo opportunities in the lobby or check out the gift shop for The Nutcracker-themed tree ornaments and more.

    Running time is two hours including intermission.

    Intermission is a great time to answer any questions children might have about the plot or characters. You can also briefly explain to/remind them what will be happening in the second act. This is a great opportunity to learn theater etiquette.

    After the show we will visit Seattle Center to get lunch in the Food Plaza. There are a variety of restaurants, and a wonderful toy train exhibit. It's a wonderful way to enjoy the Christmas season with friends.

    Sign up in January !!!

    Join us for this favorite and very popular annual event for 

    TEENS, KIDS of all ages, and families. 

    Exchange Valentine Cards, and eat some yummy treats!

    Cost: Pay at the door. 

    $8.00 with inline rental, $7 for quads, or $6 with your own skates.

    You can wear your own skates if the wheels are not too worn.

    Cash or debit/credit card only-No checks.

    Please register so we know who is coming and also so your friends can see you are coming.

    (Your homeschooled friends are welcome to join us too!)

    What to Bring:

    1) Plate of cookies or snacks to share

    And if your kids would like to participate in the Valentine Exchange and many do...please bring:

    2) Twelve Valentine Cards per student to exchange with others. (Many put a small candy treat inside or on it). (These will go to random friends, no names on them).

    3) Decorated box or bag to hold cards. Label the container with the child's name and grade.

    Everett Skate Deck Management has asked that the cookie area be monitored periodically and messes cleaned up as they happen.  We will rotate this responsibility every 30 minutes according to the schedule below (by last name):       A-I:  12:45 - 1:30

                                 J-R:  1:30 - 2:00

                                 S-Z:   2:15 - 2:45

    It helps tremendously if everyone pitches in at the end for a final clean up of the area.  Thank you in advance for your help with this important job!

     Contact Elizabeth Grace  - egracegrace@gmail.com or text 425-890-6882, if you have any questions about this event! Thanks so much!
